On 9 April, Barbara was supposed to give a Talk at the Mayor’s Coffee Morning. Unfortunately, on the day she was suffering from COVID and was unable to attend.

I filled in for her and did a guided tour of the paintings and sculptures displayed around the ground floor of the building. All credit due to our Mayor, Councillor Elaine Silverwood, for theming her coffee morning around the Art and it proved to be very popular. Her guests were a very attentive and interested audience.

On 19 April Barbara made a return visit to the Warton History Society having previously spoken to them two years ago, pre pandemic and they wanted her again as they had enjoyed it so much the first time.

If you belong to an organisation that has visiting speakers do pass on Barbara’s contact details. She is always very well received wherever she speaks. All the money she is given either as a donation or a Speaker’s fee goes towards our conservation projects.
